Like many American families, we are taking a few road trips this summer. Ever since my boys were old enough, they have been in charge of their own backpacks o' fun during these trips. Their backpacks usually include crayons, pencils, snacks, a drink, a zip-lock bag of LEGOs, a stuffed friend, and some books. (I am going to cry the first time "Bear" doesn't come with us on a road trip!) It has been my job to give the boys some entertaining, and (gasp!) educational books for them to choose from.
In hopes of keeping them unplugged and off my iPad, I have chosen a few activity books in addition to their books for reading (coming in a later post). I thought I would share some of the activity books that are up for consideration:
Big Nate: Boredom Busters by Lincoln Pierce (Harper)
101 Places You Gotta See Before You're 12 by Joanne O'Sullivan (Lark Books)
**Dear Son #1 is on his second Wimpy Kid DIY book. We LOVE them!!
LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Sticker Collection (DK)
Pocket Doodles For Boys by Chris Sabatino (Gibbs Smith)
**Dear Son #2 is on his second Pocket Doodles, the first one he has is "For Kids"
Summer Bridge Activities K-1 (Rainbow Bridge)
Summer Bridge Activities 3-4 (Rainbow Bridge)
*You can laugh at me, but my kids actually do them, enjoy them and learn from these activity books. I've tried them all, but these are my favorite multi-subject workbooks.
